Born in Pittsburgh, Kathleen Tessaro studied drama before emigrating to London. After ten years working as an actress in films, television, and theatre, she left the profession and spent several years working for the English National Opera, while training in the evenings as a drama teacher and voice coach. During this time, she began to write. Working on short stories during her lunch hour, she soon became a regular member of a writers workshop.
Praise for The Perfume Collector: `This evocative novel spins you back a few decades to the grace and elegance of the `20s and `50s' GLAMOUR `A mesmerising novel of passion and scent' - WOMAN AND HOME `The joy in Tessaro's books, however, is her knack for describing glamour. She leaves readers greedy for satin and lace, for angular cocktail dresses and complex scents spilling from beautiful bottles. It's a voluptuous and desirable world to drop into, but her characters have enough depth and moral ambiguity to lift this above most' EMERALD STREET Praise for The Debutante: 'It's an elegant and glamorous plot ...which means lots of mouth-watering descriptions of decaying stately homes by the sea' Daily Mail `The latest from the author of bestseller Elegance. New Yorker Cate immerses herself in the mystery of the Mitford-esque 1920's London debutante' Red `A shoebox filled with mementoes sets artist Cate on a hunt for the truth behind the disappearance of a dazzling 1920's `it' girl in Kathleen Tessaro's The Debutante' Good Housekeeping `Tessaro gets her story-weaving wand out with a gloriously rich story of past and present love' InStyle `Reading The Debutante was the most delicious treat. Engrossing, romantic, wise and witty - the perfect read. I could not put it down' Gillian Greenwood, author of Satisfaction and The Ghost Lover
